    Default Overclocking Software Possbile?

    Hello,

    In light of 1.1.2, and the discovery that the Processor and Memory Bus is over clocked (From 400 to 412MHz and 100Mhz to 103Mhz respectively). As an avid overclocker of PC hardware, is it possible for us to develop software to overclock the iPhone (i.e., through changing clock speeds, and adjusting voltages)?

    I just wanted to toss that out there, maybe someone could work on it.

    WARNING: Overclocking is not child's play and may seriously damage your iPhone/hardware. (Oh and to the less experienced overclockers: high clock speeds don't fry your processor, high voltages do, you just need to find a point where you can get the highest clock speed for your current voltage, or we can under volt our iPhone to get the highest possible battery life)

    searched the forum and surprisingly saw no discussion on this matter.
    I for sure wouldn't mind some decrease in battery life for better speed (sms & calender launch times are the prominent examples for being relatively slow).

    any insight on this?

    Overclock???

    You know that, even at 412Mhz, the iPhone's ARM is still UNDERclocked, right?

    The 1.1.2 firmware contained an apparent overclock as performance improved across the board. So to the extent that you can overclock an overclock? General consensus is that Apple's developers are already on top of this.

    It's not an overclock!
    Apple, apparently, increased the ARM's speed in the 1.1.2 but it's still underclocked.

    Since the 1.1.2 has better power usage management than previous firmwares, they could afford the 12Mhz increase and not affect the battery drain.

    Why need overclock? I think iPhone is pretty responsive and there is no overclock urgently needed.

    Well, it would help in increasing the performance of the GBA emulator.

    Man, it's just so annoying to play it right now :\
